Yes, very pleased. When I got the bike (used), I figured I would go with the Metz like I had before. Metz no longer approves fitment for Kingpin. Figured I would go with them anyway.... but I would look to see what was out there. Dunpops for OEM Harleys get great reviews on Kingpins but I didn't want to take out a second mortgage to buy them. So I searched EVERY brand out there for the stock sizes, that made radial rear and bias front. Only 7 or so fit the bill. Then it was just a question of liking tread design, reading reviews and COST. The Pirelli night dragon fit the bill (plus my bike had a used one on back with 70% tread left and a dry rotting Dunpop on front). Shopped around and got the new front in biased for less than $150.00. Will replace the rear next riding season. IMHO, you can't go wrong with this combo....
On your head shake.... I run the tires at the stated pressure for 2 up (I'm a big guy). I also run Dyna=Beads. They are fantastick !!!!!! I can't say that enough. I had an 03 V92C and at 80-85 it would get unstable. Had new Avons on it. Correct air and balanced properly. Neck bearings were tightened properly (you need to check that also). Took wheel weights off and added Dyna-Beads. Triple digits on the speedo without any issues.......
